We got any ships still running 1200 psi Superheat steam plants? I thought everything was going to gas turbine-electric power plants?

twelve-hundred pounds of heated steam can kill you mighty dead

Except mine was 600 PSIG and all of the nukes are 600 PSIG. 1200 PSIG still ain't shit. In the power plant where I work, one unit runs 2400 PSIG throttle pressure.

There are several conventionally powered ships in the NAV. LCCs, AGFs, some carriers, some LPDS, some LSDs, LHAs, and LHDs among others. Nuke aircraft carriers use steam propulsion and there are several diesel plants as well. FYI, the ships to which you're referring aren't called "gas turbine-electric," they're just gas turbines.
